Apple CEO Steve Jobs diagnosed with Cancer, has just 6 weeks to live

submit to reddit

Apple founder and CEO Steve Jobs has terminal pancreatic cancer and may live for just six more weeks, a media report said Thursday.

The 55-year-old Jobs in January announced that at his request, the board of directors granted him a medical leave of absence so that he could focus on his health.

Since then, employees have said Jobs can still be seen at the company’s headquarters in California and is also calling all the strategic shots from his home.

Now, new pictures have been published in the tabloid National Enquirer, which suggest things may be worse for the the man behind the iPod, iPhone and iPad.

The report said Jobs is stricken with pancreatic cancer and may have just six weeks to live.

The new photos show him looking painfully frail and weak, with his jeans and dark top hanging loosely on his six-feet-two-inches, frail body, the Daily Mail reported.

The pictures were not yet available online, but Jobs’s weight is said to have dropped from a pre-cancer 175 pounds to 130 pounds now, according to the National Enquirer.

His thinning hair was a sign of the effects of chemotherapy used to treat the disease.

The photos, which were taken Feb 8, showed Jobs going for breakfast with his wife Laurene Powell before heading to the Stanford Cancer Centre in California.

Jerome Spunberg, a doctor, said: ‘Mr. Jobs is most likely getting outpatient chemotherapy at Stanford because the cancer has recurred.’

Gabe Mirkin, a physician with 40 years’ experience, said: ‘He is terminal. What you are seeing is extreme muscle wasting from calorie deprivation, most likely caused by cancer. He has no muscle left in his buttocks, which is the last place to go.’

‘He definitely appears to be in the terminal stages of his life from these photos. I would be surprised if he weighed more than 130 pounds.’

Critical care physician Samuel Jacobson also said: ‘Judging from the photos, he is close to terminal. I would say he has six weeks.’

A source, who recently saw Jobs, added: ‘He is very frail, moving like a weak, feeble old man. He weaves back and forth when he walks, as if he is having trouble keeping his balance, and the pain of every step is evident on his face.’

The Apple CEO, who is worth $6 billion, is currently on his third medical leave, and has battled a rare form of pancreatic cancer for seven years and had a liver transplant in 2009.

An Apple spokesman did not comment on the new photos.

    have you ever heard of karma and what God has ordained for you?
    sell a product that is high in radiation which can cause cancer, but, do not disclose this information to the millions of buyers across the world because it might just detour sales.

    your balance or punishment is to develop cancer. It makes perfect since if you see the truth.

    he needs to fix his wrong then maybe he will have his punishment removed.

    otherwise he will suffer..

    PC is a very painful, very sad disease. I recently lost a loved one to it and have nothing but sympathy and kind thoughts for Steve and his family. I hope this is just another bout that he will again fight and win. He has good left to do.

    Dying with $6,000,000,000 (six billion)in the bank is a testament of the abject failure of one’s life. For one has surely not lived life to their full potential, nor bettered the lives of their fellow men as one could have. Add to this consideration, unlike the sudden death of a auto accident, that he has had 5 years to contemplate this — and still elected to sit behind a corporate desk overseeing the commercial business of trinket design and production for profit.

    What a fu<|<!n@| jew!!!!

    There must most certainly be a method encrypted within the Torah on taking it with you that is unknown to the goy.

      How much money do you have in the bank, since you say that he is a failure?
      What have you accomplished, as opposed to this guy who revolutionized personal electronics?

      You, good sir, are an idiot

      • J

        Also, “production for profit”? Are you legally retarded?
        Every single companies engages in “production for profit”. If your business plan is to produce things without making money, your business will fail.

        • James Woroble Jr

          Awww c’mon! Tell the truth ‘J(ew)'[Geeesh! Look who I’m asking :-D ]. It was the ‘What a fu<|<!n@| jew!!!!' that put you skull cap into escape velocity.

    My wife died of cancer 6 weeks ago, She was only 41. Her problems sound very similar to Jobs i.e. buttock muscle disappeared, had no balance, walking was painful, weight loss, etc. I can tell you that whether you like Steve Jobs/Apple or not, I wouldn’t wish cancer on my worst enemy. When you see someone (especially someone you love) die in this way it is very upsetting. I wish his family all the best, living with bereavement is very difficult.

    There is a lot of alternative these days and you are willing to try it wont hurt. I know some strong natural remedies who have bring people back to life when the doctors lost all hope.But yet its your choice to believe Miracle happen only when we believe if you want more information let me know I’ll will be please to help it hurt me to see so many people loose their life when there is a lot of ways to save them but if they believe more in doctors than simple things its their choice keep you in prayer.

  • Martina

    There is a lot of remedies these days to overcome Cancer if Steve want to try I’m willing to help but if he believe only in doctors be prepare to die yet what a waste after achieving so much…

      Steve Jobs Unfortunatly went with the status quo and chose the slash,burn and poison treatment perfered by the AMA and the American Cancer Society . Looking at his pictures , it was not the cancer that killed him. It was most deffinately the procedures that weakened him to the point that Cachexia took him ! Primarily the chemotherapy or poison! There are tens of thousands who have been cured by alternative natural methods.Traditional medicine has a 3% cure rate at best. Alternative protocols have an 80 to 90% cure rate ! However you’ll never hear about it from the media, it’s aaallll about the money . Go online to Cancer Tutor .
